McCAIN BOARD OF DIRECTORS & MANAGEMENT
McCain is one of the most famous Canadian brand names in the world and we have two Boards that oversee the company: Holdco (the family holding company) and Opco (the operating company).
Board directors are accountable for ensuring McCain is always working most effectively for its shareholders, employees and for the communities in which we live and work.
While McCain is a privately held company, our Boards have adopted many best practices that are often followed by companies that are accountable to securities regulators and public shareholders. These types of practices ensure that McCain has rigorous oversight of its management and operations, as well as benefitting from the strategic guidance of its directors in assessing growth opportunities and in developing long-range plans.
The directors of our operating company Board include McCain family members, McCain executives (including the CEO) and highly experienced independent directors.
